Mappery For the love of maps

Belgium and Holland as Lions

Ed Freyfogle was at the Denver Art Museum and spotted this pair of lion maps

Some Maps in the Wild at the Denver Art Museum: Holland and Belgium as lions, part of the amazing exhibit on Flemish masters.

This reminds me of those maps of Britain as a bulldog or Fred Rose’s octopus images used to indicate Russia’s imperial connections in the build up to the first war.
